Following on from a recent Primavera P6 blog where we discussed and provided work-arounds for a couple of Print Preview Header and Footer bugs, Gregg Stevens from the UK sent in this solution for solving a Primavera P6 HMTL title block issue.
Some of you may have come across this issue already, but most of you will not until you migrate to Windows 7. Microsoft have sneakily removed two component files (html editing controls), which Primavera P6 Release 7 requires to view the title block correctly. The missing file has no affect on the final printed version of the layout but will cause you an issue when you want to view and edit the title block. Without this file you need to be a HTML wizard to get your title block to read correctly when printed.
Below is a screen shot of a Windows 7 machine without the file and a Windows XP machine with the file. It was this that made us realise the issue was with Windows 7.
The problem is that Windows 7 is missing two components: Dhtmled.ocx and TriEdit.dll. Microsoft is well aware of the problem but unfortunately, do not list the software products affected. A full write up of the issue (not Primavera P6 specific) and information about the replacing the DHTML Editing Control can be found by clicking here.
This missing components can either be copied from an existing machine and registered or installed from the Microsoft download site which you can go to by clicking here.
I hope this helps any folks that are experiencing this issue and our thanks to Gregg Stevens for providing the content for this blog.
